What is your overall opinion of this product?
So here's the thing... there's nothing wrong with this guitar that hasn't always been wrong with Strats. If you're used to having to get the neck adjusted, nut replaced, and coming up with a tuning solution if you dare use the tremolo - then this is a fine example of a Fender Stratocaster. The finish is excellent. The fit is a mess. There are gaps in the neck socket I can fit a .73mm pick into. The nut had to be replaced because it was cut poorly. The neck needed to be adjusted. For good measure I also replaced the pickguard and bridge pickup - because I was going to do those things at some point anyway. This is an American made guitar. It's supposed to be better than this. There's a reason there are so many replacement parts for Stratocasters... you need them.
